The operation of an air transport company in Cameroon requires the grant of an air operator license from the Cameroon Civil Aviation Authority. This document attests that an enterprise has satisfied the legal, financial, economic and moral conditions required by the regulations in force. It equally confirms the certificate of air worthiness, noise certificate and certificate of exploitation of radio electric installation.
Once an air operator license is granted, the enterprise is authorized to carryout the transportation of passengers, mail and/or freight as indicated on the license.
